PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity will give students an opportunity to learn about United States Presidential Inaugurations and practice online research skills. We have included a brief explanation of what a presidential inauguration is and a matching activity of inauguration dates of U.S. presidents from George Washington in 1789 to Barack Obama in 2013. We have divided the activity into two parts – part 1 is Presidential Inaugurations of the 18th and 19th Centuries and part 2 is Presidential Inaugurations of the 20th and 21st Centuries. Each part consists of three pages – a puzzle sheet, an answer sheet, and a student directions sheet.

Each puzzle sheet is a scrambled picture with an American theme (Part 1 has elements from the Great Seal of the United States including an eagle, stars, olive branch, and thirteen arrows. Part 2 has a flag, fireworks, and the Washington Monument.) Each picture has been divided into boxes with each box having a number that corresponds to the name of a president from the student directions sheet. (Part 1 has numbers 1A-25A for George Washington to the first term of William McKinley. Part 2 has numbers 25B-44B for the second term of William McKinley to Barack Obama.) We have used letters to indicate presidents who had multiple consecutive terms. Grover Cleveland has two numbers, 22 and 24, because his terms were not consecutive. The answer sheets contain boxes with the dates of the presidential inaugurations. Students are to cut out the boxes with part of the picture and number from the puzzle sheet and match them to the correct dates of the presidential inaugurations listed in the boxes on the answer sheets. Students should glue the box with the number representing the president to the correct date for his inauguration. If all boxes are glued correctly, the pictures will be formed.
